I really had no idea that I would like the Panasonic GM1 and 12-32mm zoom lens so much. It really isn't 'my kind of camera.' However, it produces superb quality for both stills and video and it's fast, responsive and a pleasure to use. Added to the fact that I can remotely control it with my iPad, it's a really versatile camera that produces top class still images and video footage. From it's size and form factor few non-photographers would ever imagine it could be so, but it's easily good enough to cover a range of professional jobs, from travel location photography to studio assignments. And most of that can be achieved using auto-everything.

How much difference is there between this and a GH3 or an E-M1? Well not that much I would suggest and in some cases it's actually better (Olympus video). Have a look at the 'showboating' horse in the video and how well it handles that. Really quite amazing. It has of course thrown up all sorts of questions as to how I'm going to structure my future gear. Can a camera this small really handle what I want to do? Well I think it just might. And there is no way I would have anticipated that.

I do make a small income from them, which covers expenses and some small recompense for the time I take to write this, but no more than that.

It will cost you nothing and you don't have to buy anything to contribute a (very!) small amount to my coffers.
